      Hi Shaz.

      I'm new to the forum and would love to get some advise or assistance with some scripting problems I am having with VX ACE.

      I am currently trying to get your remember event position script to work, but I must have something wrong.

      I apologize if this is not the best way to communicate, I haven't used forums or facebook in years.

      Thanks,
      Trajedy

        Hi and welcome Trajedy! Please either post in the topic of the script with what your problem is, or open a new topic in Script Support. Thanks!

      Today I learned that if I sleep through an important message on the on-call phone in the early hours, it will resend every 5 minutes.

        Not that I DID that - I slept through an unimportant message at 1:00, and only found out when another unimportant message woke me at 4:00. I told someone I was worried it might happen to an important (scheduler has died type of thing) issue, and he assured me it wouldn't happen. :/

        Yikes. Glad they have that built-in failsafe. Would they also call your personal phone if you didn't respond after a time? Some places have records of who's on-call and their personal number as a backup this way.

        Can I ask what you do?

        If I don't respond within half an hour, they will call my senior manager. I'm a programmer at a bank. We all take it in turns to have the on-call phone for a week, when we have enough experience.

        Yeah. Got it for a week. Previous guy assured me it was quiet for him and the guy before. I've had 3 calls (latest at 2 this morning, which is why I'm still up now) and the week's barely half over :(

        There is a SMALL extra payment for having it for the week, but there's no variation based on how many calls you take or how many hours you spend fixing things.

        Oh! LOL! I assumed you were in winter still. xD Heat is a bit more difficult to deal with. You're on the right track with thinking of ways to create shade. Other than shade, you've just got to keep your plants hydrated. Hope your melons don't die. :(

        It's commercial. It's not close enough to worry about "seeing it go" - it came to a bit of a standstill for a couple of years and every time I tried to resurrect it, it didn't get very far. In January I had massive progress and there are no more blockers to prevent finishing. I'll be very glad to have it finished - thinking whether to pick up the sequel.

        Test play 3 - got a few dialogue boxes and characters moving, then crashed. Still got a few hundred script calls that need to be converted. Guess I need to work on those before I can get any decent play time. And I need to redo my opening cutscene.

        Tasty work? I'm a computer programmer at a bank. I've just been bringing in my laptop this week since I became active on my game again, and decided not to today, as I've done all the work I wanted to do at lunchtime. But because I don't have it, I'm bored and I still have (had) half an hour of lunch to go. I ended up just doing more work, then realised "hey, I still have a half hour lunch break to finish!"

      Just got MV, got Yanfly plug ins, now I'm a little confused. Is there a list of all the commands you can put into the notes for custom sequences? I basically want my user svbattler to disappear when the animation for the skill starts and then reappear when its done. I'm sure it's simple and I'm just clueless.

        I got MV, but wanted animated enemies. so I googled it and followed yanfly instructions for plug ins. I am computer literate, just somehow missed the actual list for action sequences.
